So a few things struck me when I read the tour dates. It is really a one month tour with no shows in the South, Bay Area or Northwest. Also they picked Charlottesville instead of Hampton, which if you are doing a DC show makes little sense population-wise. This almost looks like a trial balloon tour and if all goes well a bigger tour in the summer or fall might be on the books.

I thought I saw Mountain View on the tour list. If memory serves (faulty at best) that is Bay Area. I'm in line for the Forum in LA, but may try to catch both Cali shows. Great news for a new year!

Do you think I'll get my ass kicked if I wear one of my daughter's Virginia Tech shirts to the Charlottesville show? This is the one I have in mind:

I think you should be wearing that shirt down here in S. Florida tonight. Apparently there are thousands of tix available for the Orange Bowl and you can pick them up for 10 bucks a pop (face value starts at $100).

It's UVA - the only way some Wahoo will kick your ass is by the glaring choice of the orange blazer with blue slacks (or vice versa)

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. I have been to 4 Final Fours and by far and away the fans most likely to show up in a blazer were rooting for the team that traveled from Durham, NC. Lovely blue blazers or white sweaters draped over a blue polo shirt was the typical male attire.

Of course i don't think UVA hasn't been to a (mens) final four since Ralph Sampson so maybe they are worse and I just don't know it.

UVa went to a Final Four, forget the year, after Sampson graduated. With Othell Wilson at point. But I more recall Sampson's last 2 college losses - both to the Cardiac Pack in ACC Tourney and West Regional Finals.

And I must agree with you about Duke alumni over 50 - I call them the Scotch and Seconal crowd because they don't make any noise. And is there anything dumber looking than the freakin' beanies with devil horns? But don't worry - I doubt we'll be at the Final Four this year (though I like our chances to play for that right - the teams that look good to me at this very early stage are Wake, UNC, G-Town and UConn - all have speed and size).

Phil's son goes to UVA. They've had two PAF shows in the last year and a half too.
